Last week we reported the news that Saab was auctioning off the vehicles in its museum, with over 120 different models looking to be separated from one another. It appears that Saab enthusiasts and the city of Trollhättan, where the museum is located, wasn’t too keen on that idea.
The museum has been saved thanks to the city of Trollhättan, SAAB AB and The Wallenburg foundations. The trio paid over $4.1-million for the whole collection to remain in Trollhättan, but more importantly none of the cars will be separated from one another. The running costs of the museum will also be absorbed by the city and the regional government.
This is great news for what little may remain of Saab history, with the museum presumably housing the most complete collection of Saab vehicles in the world.
